Robert Dwyer Joyce
In comes the captain's daughter,|
The captain of the Yeos,
Saying: Brave United Irishmen,
We'll ne'er again be foes.
A thousand pounds I'll bring
If you will fly from home with me,
And dress myself in man's attire
And fight for liberty.
We are the boys of Wexford,
Who fought with heart and hand
To burst in twain the galling chain
And free our native land.
2. I want no gold, my maiden fair,
3. And when we left our cabins, boys,|
We left with right good will
To see our friends and neighbours
That were at Vinegar Hill!
A young man from our Irish ranks
A cannon he let go;
He slapt it into Lord Mountjoy -
A tyrant he laid low! Chorus:
4. We bravely fought and conquered
5. And Oulart's name shall be their shame,
